    I never thought SJ was a one trick pony, however I wasn't really arsed on him either way, always seemed a bit stale, oh well, just knew the right people I guess
    Don't worry - its nothing a drink can't fix

    I don't really like Chris Roberts, his skating got old on me kinda quickly... His part on A Time To Shine was good in bits but I thoguht generally it wasn't all that great...

    i think roberts video parts get boring quickly, just seems to be a selection of manual tricks, which are good but just seems to be all he does.

    scott johnson was and probably still is sick as someone else jus mentioned he killed it at that radlands comp.

    i dont mind chris roberts, kinda prefered him when he had that lil cameo in the chocolate tour though pre adio and long beard.

    Both those dudes lack the commitment needed to become a real all round skateboarder.

    You must have shit in your eyes, Roberts aint bad people just dislike him because of the Adio stink I reckon and Scotty J was/is amazing...style for miles.

    There are far worse pro's/ams/man ams than those two out there

    Dont make me bring the list out...ha ha

    it's probably because he does nothing but these in different variations:

    fakie 5-0.
    fakie manual.
    nosegrinds
    shuv-it,shuv-it,shuv-it,shuv-it,shuv-it. . . . .
    end of.

    im not a fan.

    I will reiterate myself and say that SJ was a street don bitd, and can probably still hold it down today (out of the limelight).

    Maybe I should have used castillo as the counter example.

    What I mean is (as everyone seems to also agree), Roberts has about three tricks that he's milking and I reckon this will inevitably stick him in the Chocolate B-team of pros that just hang on forever and keep on milking that same trick.

    Next time you go skating with him, mention it to him then.
